Course summary

Foundation Year Programmes are a means of accessing degree study should you not meet the entry requirements for honours degree programmes. The Foundation Year degree in Veterinary Bioscience provides a preparatory year for students hoping to progress to veterinary bioscience, veterinary nursing or veterinary physiotherapy degrees. Candidates will be assessed at the end of their first year of study and progress to Year 1 of an Honours Degree (BSc Hons). A pass at 40% gives straight progression to the BSc (Hons) Veterinary Bioscience route that the student is on (transfer to another route can be requested but is at the course manager's discretion) A pass at at least 60% permits transfer to any BSc (Hons) route, provided any additional requirements (such as work experience) are met. Progression will be based on prior qualifications, preparatory year performance and for some routes a fitness to practice assessment. 5 years (full-time) including a one-year work placement. A four year programme is available for applicants with at least two years, full-time relevant work experience. Please contact Admissions for further information on this option. Please note this course DOES NOT provide a route through to studying Veterinary Medicine at the joint Harper & Keele Veterinary School. Please see course XD01 for this option.
